    I'm not a doctor but I've never heard of any medications to prevent breast cancer as if there were I'm sure all women would take it. Hormone supressing meds. after a diagnosis may be what you mean?

      Yes people with high risk offer Tamoxifen as prevention but haven't taken because of side effects

    Are you thinking of hormone suppressing medication to be taken long term after active treatment?
